Explanation
A staggered formation is generally the best way for a group to maintain close ranks while also allowing each rider to maintain an adequate cushion of space. A single-file formation is preferable when taking curves, turning, or entering or exiting a highway.

2. Just like cars, motorcycles have blind spots. When switching lanes, you should:

Explanation
Blind spots, by definition, are areas that you cannot see by just looking in your mirrors. Turn your head to the side and check over your shoulder for vehicles in your blind spot before you change lanes.

3. An advantage to keeping a cushion of space between your motorcycle and other vehicles is that:

Explanation
Maintaining a cushion of space between your motorcycle and other vehicles on the road will give you a clearer view of any emerging hazards, more time to react to hazards, and more space to maneuver around them.

4. The front brake supplies approximately how much of a motorcycle's potential stopping power?

Explanation
The front brake of a motorcycle is more powerful than the rear brake. The front brake supplies at least 70 percent of a motorcycle's total stopping power.

5. When riding in a group, the best way to keep ranks close while maintaining an adequate safety cushion is to ride:

Explanation
A staggered formation is the best way to keep ranks close while still maintaining an adequate space cushion for all riders. Ride in a single-file line when riding in curves, turning, or entering or leaving a highway. Never ride side-by-side with another rider.

6. The control for the rear brake is usually located:

Explanation
The rear brake of a motorcycle is usually operated with the right foot.

7. If your motorcycle starts to wobble, you should:

Explanation
Do not try to accelerate out of a wobble because doing so will only make the motorcycle more unstable. Instead, grip the handlebars firmly, slow down by gradually closing the throttle, move your weight as far forward and downward as possible, and pull off the road as soon as you can. Avoid applying the brakes, as this may also worsen the wobble.
